A yellow “be aware” weather warning has been issued by the Met Office, for thunderstorms across the Isle of Wight.

We are warned it could mean some travel disruption and flooding.

The organisation says,

“Whilst some places will escape them, thunderstorms will break out this afternoon and evening giving torrential downpours in a few places. Some of these storms will also be slow-moving, meaning that downpours may well be quite prolonged. 20 mm rain may fall in an hour and, in some places, 30 to 40 mm rain may fall in two or three hours. Thunderstorms will then slowly ease through the evening.”

The weather warning will be in force between 1pm and 11pm today (Wednesday).
